I have my own pattern.

I managed to get a lot done despite not getting up until late. I had a disturbed night because I let the wandering cat in quite late when it started raining quite hard. I have to watch my cats around him because it causes problems with mister (my cat). That means i didn’t get to sleep until about 5 am. I decided to have my breakfast before I went to sleep. I briefly woke up to feed my own cats this morning.

I actually cleaned the windows at the back of my flat (not all the windows) yesterday so I haven’t been lazy during the hot weather. I caught up with some ironing yesterday evening after it had cooled down. I wasn’t sure if i wanted to go the gym today (trying to work up to twice a week but I spent 2 hours there on Tuesday evening). I need to get things sorted around here before university module starts next month. I have to ring the GP surgery back tomorrow as someone from reception left a message for me saying there was a prescription available for me to collect and they had a message they need to give me. I logged onto my online account to check my test results. It has got abnormal but expected. That suggests that I’m probably anaemic again. If I am now before my period then I’m going to have it worse in two weeks after my monthly happens next week. I have eaten more than normal for a fortnight and taken multi vitamins so logically it makes no sense. I haven’t had my period for at least 3 weeks which is why its due next week. There is no way I can possibly have lost any iron. It’s only meant to be borderline so maybe treating it isn’t wise. That made my monthly heavier when they were already quite that way naturally. Then I wouldn’t have to take the medication to control it. It has become a never ending circle of cause and effect. I don’t feel as tired as I used to so it’s more manageable for me. I would rather have a comfortable life than not be house bound some days of my monthly even with medication to control it when on iron tablets.

Author: Diary of a Painfully Shy Introvert

A blog written by a female diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but suspected PDA in more recent years. Musings of a Trainee Battleaxe was created to not only create awareness of the PDA part of the spectrum; but also to educate the public hopefully creating understanding in order to stop future generations being let down and labelled negatively. Disclaimer: There may be parts of this blog which viewers may find upsetting as it contains accounts of real life events which have been quite traumatic. However, it is all to help create a sense of understanding and combat the fear surrounding all aspects of mental illness and Pathological Avoidance Syndrome (a very little understood part of the autistic spectrum).
